Steve is new to the town of Rexburg, Idaho. With only eight dollars to his name, he faces the realization that he and his wife are temporarily homeless. When he turns to fellow members of his faith he is taken aback to learn that they are not sympathetic to his plight, nor do they offer to help. The members recall the day the Teton dam broke and the flood raged through. Rexburg had banded together that day, yet there is no help for Steve when he needs food and shelter. Steve's move west is adventurous indeed; just not in the way he had expected.
This volume brings together interpretations of the story of Noach and the Flood in diverse ancient Jewish and Christian traditions (including the Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic mythology, rabbinical tradition). It opens with an analysis of the biblical story within its ancient oriental context and ends with essays by a historian of science and a psycho-analyst.
M. A. Nelson's riveting novel The Flood invites you into a world where danger and darkness are swirling together and building rapidly as Noah, Sara, and their three sons and families seek to be faithful to God's call upon their lives and respond faithfully. With riveting tension, powerful imagery, and non-stop action, The Flood offers a compelling and dramatic story of faith and loyalty, trust and obedience, all set against a backdrop of a fallen world. You are sure to find inspiration as well as challenging questions for your own faith journey as you feel the approach of the storm and listen for God's leading.
